Scholar athletes

Art direction / Print design

Every year, The Columbus Dispatch and Motorists Insurance award scholarships to Central Ohio’s top scholar athletes. And every year we try to find a new way to present the two top winners on the special section cover. This year we photographed the smiling athletes in front of a chalkboard. Art Director Scott Minister provided the hand lettering, while I added the academic-minded doodles and worked with Dispatch photographer Eric Albrecht on the composition and lighting.
